The natural light that accompanies a daytime wedding can be a bride's best friend, both in pictures and in person. An unfussy look is the safest bet for daytime weddings because neutral tones emphasizes the bride's true beauty, rather than relying on a lot of attention-stealing makeup. Brides should use minimal foundation to avoid unsightly caking, which is revealed in detail by daylight. Blush in a peach or pink color (depending on skin tone, of course), paired with pastel or natural-toned eye shadow creates a look that's both fresh and classic.

Daytime brides -- especially those having outdoor events -- should also consider steering clear of dramatic eyeliner colors, such as black or dark brown. Instead, opt for softer colors like charcoal or mahogany, which will still make the eyes pop. Wise brides who intend to spend time in the sun during the ceremony or reception will also incorporate a little SPF into their beauty scheme via a light moisturizer, foundation or sunscreen to avoid unfortunate burns. No one wants to start peeling halfway through the honeymoon!
